Mattie has a very strong partnership with our parents. They actively serve as volunteers in the classroom working one-on-one with students, with small groups, as library helpers, offering computer assistance and working with our gardens. In order to volunteer, verification of COVID vaccination and current TB test is needed.


The Windsor State Preschool is housed at Mattie Washburn and is an important part of the school environment. This program is run by 4C’s (Community Child Care Council) of Sonoma County. There are two sessions a day, morning and afternoon. If you are interested in the Preschool, learn more by clicking here, or please call their office at 707-544-3077.


At Mattie, we are committed to ensuring that all students receive a challenging academic program in an engaging, nurturing and inclusive environment. We offer a balanced curriculum, which combines hands-on, real life experiences with the foundational skills needed for success. Our focus is on early literacy with the goal that all students will be fluent readers as they leave first grade. A standards based report card charts the growth that students make in all academic areas and gives parents the knowledge of how their child is doing in school. Reading, writing and math assessments are administered to all students by the classroom teacher three times a year.
